I can confirm that ffmpeg 4.2 has compiled without a hitch with BMD SDK 11.4.

It is not working with ffmpeg 4.2 and BMD SDK 11.5

I can confirm, I'm still trying to find a version that compiles.

@tech-nickel @sandervg did you guys manage to compile the BMD SDK 11.5? I think you need to execute sudo ldconfig after the compilation of the BMD SDK 11.5 otherwise ffmpeg won't be able to find the libraries of Blackmagic.

I ended up compiling ffmpeg 4.2 with the 11.4 SDK, that works fine.

@tech-nickel yes, I didn't try to compile 11.5, but glad that you managed to do it!

Compiled with ffmpeg 4.2.3 and Desktop Video 11.5.1 on Ubuntu 20.04, however, I had to use sudo apt install libnuma-dev for x265 support to be enabled.

@brendandower90 and others: I'm getting a compilation error

I'm running into an error with ffmpeg 4.2.3 and Desktop Video 11.7 and 11.5.1 on Ubuntu 20.04.
I'm getitng the following errors when I run this command: PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" make -j nprocC

Any thoughts or suggestion?

I have exact same situation:
Trying to build 4.1.6 debian sources-package
Tried both 11.7 and 11.5.1 with same results

I previously managed to build 4.1.3 debian sources-package along with 11.4 by patching as suggested https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/7789 .... But now I'm getting this one.
Hope someone could help...

Managed to compile using Ubuntu 20.04, ffmpeg 4.4, Blackmagic v12 packages.
Thanks a lot for this!

I can confirm, if you change the line:

wget https://ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-4.1.3.tar.bz2

to

wget https://ffmpeg.org/releases/ffmpeg-4.4.tar.bz2

it compiles for the black magic SDK 12 on my Ubuntu 18.04 System
